Is this useful in 2020? Last timestamp update on launchpad was 2011 and can't find a gitlab/hub repo of it. Didn't detect any of my newer Wacoms like Cintiq Pro 32.

@Zeioth Arch packages cannot install anything to your $HOME directory! What it this does to is provide a wacom-utily.desktop file which creates a launcher entry in most DE's menus. That's your easy way to run it without knowing the command.

It would be super nice to put a script named 'wacom-utility' with this content on ~/.local/bin

python2 /usr/share/wacom-utility/

So people can run it easily. It took me a while to figure out.

On MATE, this doesn't appear in the control panel. Please remove the "OnlyShowIn" line in the "wacom-utility.desktop" file. I also removed the "en_CA" lines, as they have the same contents from before, and the empty/undefined "GenericName".

The shebang in the script should be updated to "python2" instead of "python" (it's a simple "sed -i 1s/$/2/" in the PKGBUILD "build" step). This way, that script itself is a valid executable.

I missed a wacom-utility or a wacom_utility script at /usr/bin. I was quite surprised when I saw everything being installed on /usr/share. The scripts clearly imports themselves, but the "os.chdir(os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(sys.argv[0])))" only happens after importing the internal modules, so it does nothing, since the script only works when the current working directory is already /usr/share/wacom-utility. Making a minimal with an entry point would create that desired scripts and fix that path workaround, but it requires changes in the code. Perhaps it's easier to just add a shell script that changes the directory and calls the Python script.

This code looks for a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Probably that should be replaced by a custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-wacom.conf file (with "sed s:/etc/X11/xorg.conf:\&.d/01-wacom.conf:g" in the "build" section), or something like that. I'm not sure if that's enough, actually I don't even know what does this GUI have to do with the xorg.conf.

Unfortunately, as it seems, this GUI doesn't work with Intuos Art (056a:033c, CTH-490), so I can't use it anyway. =/

To anyone using xorg.conf.d, this seems to break X. It'll add a xorg.conf file in /etc/X11 containing:
Section "ServerLayout"

I assume it's trying to append it to a non-existent xorg.conf file.

what is the name of the program? couldn't find it in terminal

@hexadecagram Try the rel-5 package I just updated this to. Also check that /usr/share/applications is a directory and not a file on your system. If it is a a file, look at its contents and figure out which package wrote it (pacman -Qo /usr/share/applications) and un-install that.
